FAQ: How do I file an appeal?
To appeal the Employment Security Department (ESD) decision, you need to write a letter of appeal. The address and fax numbers are in the determination letter. You may simply write, “I disagree with the decision, I want a hearing, and I want a copy of my file.” Include your name, address, and Social Security number in the letter.
Once the letter is complete, mail or fax it to the Telecenter, using the address or fax number provided on the determination letter. Make sure you keep a copy of what you send. Our office is unable to help write appeal letters; if you need help, ask a friend or family member to assist you. You have thirty (30) days from the date on the determination letter to send your appeal.
